Solutions To Your Squirrel In Attic Problems
Squirrels are just one of many kinds of wildlife that can quickly damage your attic and home. As a matter of fact, once wildlife invades your attic, the scent they leave behind will attract other species to move in as well. For instance, the attic shown in the picture to the right had been inhabited by birds, that was until the squirrel in the photo ran them off, only to utilize the 6 foot high nest they left behind to access the attic window for a “bird’s eye view” of the surrounding landscape. Squirrels in your attic and the scent they bring with them can also attract other, larger wildlife like raccoons. This is a good example of why you do not want to let squirrels or any other wildlife into your attic and why you want to get rid of them quickly when they do make it in. We use humane, time proven methods to get rid of squirrels in the attic, all of which are very effective. We evict squirrels from buildings and make it so that they cannot get back in via repairs and reinforcements. Our motto is wildlife removal and prevention done right the first time.

Squirrel in Attic Damage Example
This particular roof was a 9 year old, thick cedar shake roof with black mesh squirrel proof gutter covers that went under the shingles. When your cedar roof is new, it is tough to get wildlife and insects out and keep them out; once it is about 9 years old or has green plant material growing on it, there is practically no stopping wildlife re-entry. Because we like doing it right the first time, it is often best to save money and wait until a new roof can be installed.
We can work with your roofer, or ours, to help replace your cedar roof with a good quality composition roof. The Skunk Whisperer helps clients replace dozens of old roofs a year. A properly installed roof with integrated wildlife-proof features is the most cost effective way to squirrel proof your home.
